Lamayuru Ladakh

About Lamayuru Ladakh:

Lamayuru is a tiny village that’s popularly known as the Moonland of Ladakh. Lamayuru is immensely popular for housing one of the oldest and largest monasteries in Ladakh. However, its claim to fame is accredited to the surreal breathtaking view of moonlike landscapes carved into the mountains.

Tourists from various places visit this relatively serene destination to immerse in this scenic beauty. It has also been said often, that on a full moon night, the area is an extraordinary sight to behold, something one doesn’t get to see every day.

Picturesque. Serene. A unique destination hence not very crowded. Hilly region can be a problem for some. Difficult to reach. Food and water can be an issue.
